    by Congress with excessive blocking/doing nothing is worse to me than using the President's powers to constitutionally move this economy forward. This country cannot continue to function with the branches of government doing nothing at all ever.

    •  Bad and worse is not an option (0+ / 0-)

      I was not speaking to what was bad and then what was worse.  

      I think this is bad precedent because I fear what a republican president could and most likely would do not that this ice has been broken.  

      It is something to think about and not something for us to argue over.
